Westerly, RI – The Washington Trust Company recently recognized three employees for standout performances both on the job and in the community. The Bank awarded each of the three employees with $1,000 to donate to the non-profit(s) of their choice.

Kristin Battisti, Vice President, Compliance Officer, and Brian Pereira, AVP, Technology Services, each earned The Spirit of Washington Trust Award. This award recognizes employees who, by example or through contributions, clearly distinguish themselves as role models for others. Battisti donated $1,000 to benefit the Ocean Community YMCA- Reach Out to Youth Campaign. Pereira donated $1,000 to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank.

Linda Aldrich, Post Closing/Quality Control Specialist, received the Community Service Award. This award is given to an employee who has made significant contributions to the local community through their personal donations of time, talent, and/or fundraising. The Award recognizes that, through their community involvement, the employee has represented the Bank’s core value of “community” and has therefore served as a role model for their fellow employees. Aldrich donated $500 to the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation and $500 to the Rhode Island Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.
